Lying in the sun and watching sky’s shaping clouds while listening to the album’s great one, Kind of Love, forms just a perfect setting. Californian indie-synth-pop group Montë Mar are characterised by mellow sound, charismatic vocals, rich guitars and energetic drums, having these all wrapped in a brand-new package called Expectations. The most memorable element of Expectations is perhaps the sound whose uniqueness up to a great degree thanks numerous synth layers and saucy composition. The outrageous feel is supported by thought provoking lyrics, innovative composition and occasional hints reminding us of sinful California soothed with surf-pop elements and mellow harmonies. No need to mention the guys‘ musicianship and their song-writing skills which are well represented by another great song called When It’s Right. Hard to find a comparable album,Expectations feels very original, fresh and energetic. Montë Mar’s first ten-piece album comes up as positive sounding, vibrant, charismatic, easy to listen and genuinely developed fresh indie-pop. Me like it.
